President Trump Likely to End DACA, and Here's Why That Helps Americans

President Trump has considered the immigration policy of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, during his time in office repeatedly.

It's one of the toughest Obama Era policies for some to agree upon rescinding, who will push the <i>think of the children</i> argument, in defense of keeping DACA on the books.

There's a brilliant counter to that argument, however, which essentially is <i>think of the American children</i> who are underrepresented and mischaracterized as is without the influx of foreign criminals in the classroom.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">By ending the DACA program, Trump also gains leverage…to accept passage of his very popular RAISE Act… <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Paul Nehlen (@pnehlen) <a href="">August 25, 2017</a></blockquote>

Let me repeat, <i>they are criminals the minute they cross the border illegally</i>.

<h5>Drive that into your mind. As a matter of fact, let's pause the article so you can repeat it five times:</h5>

<i>Children or not when you cross the border into America illegally you are a federal criminal.</i>

<i>Children or not when you cross the border into America illegally you are a federal criminal.</i>

<i>Children or not when you cross the border into America illegally you are a federal criminal.</i>

<i>Children or not when you cross the border into America illegally you are a federal criminal.</i>

<i>Children or not when you cross the border into America illegally you are a federal criminal.</i>

Okay. Now you understand, they're criminals. Federal criminals who violated American law the moment they came in illegally.

These are not some sainted bringers of peace. This is a nation of law and order.

Yes, we accept refugees and those seeking asylum from war torn regions and vile dictatorships as well as those facing persecution or even execution in their native lands.

We are a compassionate America, a glorious America that has accepted individuals from every nation on Earth of every ethnicity, but we do so <i>legally</i>.

Think of all the legal immigrants who have spent years trying to ascertain a legalized status or Visa to come into the United States of America and build upon society.

They fought hard, waited in line, and followed the law. So to reward criminals to me is absolutely insane in general.

Many legal immigrants and now citizens of the United States of America which came through all the red tape and followed the proper procedures agree.

Not only is it complete and utter mayhem to reward those who violated the law, it harms the economy, contrary to what the left wing media will tell you.

There's a lot of frustration over what to believe, so I'll do my best to summarize the reality of the situation and then explain why corporate behemoths in the media tell you it benefits America which is an outright lie set to benefit their shareholders and industries.

Several decades of record illegal immigration into the United States have produced lower wages and higher unemployment for our own citizens, especially for African-American and Latino workers, a point that President Trump himself echoed on the campaign trail.

While that message may indeed be hard for many Americans to process, that's understandable when the media on every platform pushes complete nonsense to confuse the public.

Anyone who tries to tell you that illegal immigration doesn’t have any actual negative effects on society and the economy simply doesn't understand how it really works.

Let's go back to the basics and explain it like this; as the supply of workers goes up, whether legal or illegal, the price that companies must inevitably pay to hire new workers goes down.

As an example, trades are essential to the American economy, especially here in the South where I'm located.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">While <a href="">#DACA</a> completes 5 years, Texas is leading a 10-state coalition urging Trump to end the immigration program: <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Texas Tribune (@TexasTribune) <a href="">August 16, 2017</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

I've spent some time on various construction sites in my youth. Ironworking specifically, but on those sites where we're building a library, for example, there are many trades involved.

Steel erectors raise the i-beams and columns all around the property. Concrete workers must lay the foundation in order for the steel to even hang. Grade and gravel crews come out and prepare their workspace.

You catching on?

After that, all occurs electricians come in simultaneously and begin running wiring. While that's going on, and the Ironworking is being completed, framers and carpenters then come in. Once they come closer to completion you start seeing drywallers, glass and window installers, siding, framing; I could go on for hours the various trades involved.

My point is, these are well-paying jobs. An ironworker in an average American state can expect to make even starting out around $20-$40 an hour. Each trade has its own rates and location matters but still, they're dangerous jobs for skilled workers in which require the best of the best in order to build a complete and successful structure.

Just a handful of years ago some of those jobs sites, in the South especially from Texas to Mississippi to Louisiana to Alabama to Georgia to Florida (I've been on sites in all of those states), entire legions of non-English speaking illegals would start appearing on job sites.

Yes, it's illegal to hire them, but what happens is a business owner, the structural steel company, the carpentry company, you name it; would legally bid on those jobs, and underbid the larger companies because they're hiring illegals.

They don't have to insure them all, they pay them half the rate so they make double the profit, but they take a risk in hiring them because OSHA can show up on any random day to a job and realize there are illegals on the site.

The builder is essentially not responsible for this. They bid out each individual task to each individual trade.

Who wins there? It's not the American worker, who essentially is screwed out of his or her job by a criminal process.

This is happening all across America. The media instead will tell you these are fruit farmers or people picking cotton that Americans don't want to work in those sectors.

This is a lie. Those aren't the jobs being taken by these illegals. They're highly skilled jobs that are high paying.

I could recall a dozen times we've been brought onto a job site, to fix the mistakes that one of these half assed immigrant crews screwed up. It happens.

I can also tell you a dozen or more times where immigrant crews have literally walked onto a job site and we've been escorted off.

The builder hired a cheaper crew, and while they're contractually obligated to hire us (many Southern states do not have Unions by the way they're known as Right-To-Work states) the job itself is over for the worker and it essentially turns into a long and drawn out court battle between a business owner and a corporate builder.

These things happen, all the time and they go unreported. People simply are unaware of this. In fact, I was just sent a check a few weeks ago, from a company I worked for half a dozen years ago where the court battle was finally settled.

Not to mention wage trends over the past half-century suggest that there's a 10 percent or so increase in the number of workers with a particular set of skills, that most likely lowers the wage of that group by at least 3 percent

While those are tiny fractions of an imbalance upon a stock of a particular industry or business, eventually once the economy has fully adjusted, those skill groups that received the most immigrants will still offer lower pay relative to those that received fewer immigrants.

Do you see where I'm going here? You permanently lower the potential rate of pay for a trade for example because the bar has been set so low.

Statistically, both low and highly skilled Americans are affected by the influx of illegal immigrants. It's basic mathematics that anyone interested in finding the truth can find with a calculator and a piece of paper.

Due the disproportionate percentage of illegal immigrants in the work force (they're competing completely off record in most cases) which have less skills than experienced Americans, it then hurts the low-skilled American workers, including many blacks and Hispanics, by not being able to hire them into work crews under an apprenticeship to learn the trade.

It's really simple. Skilled crews such as the ones I've been on, made up of hard working men and women of every color, can't hire new workers because we're competing already against illegal immigrants who are making half of what we make. Our crews get smaller, we hire less because we have less work.

According to the United States Department of Labor and Statistics, the typical American high school dropout earns about $25,000 or less annually.

According to census data, immigrants admitted into America in the past two decades who are also lacking a high school diploma have increased the size of the low-skilled workforce by roughly 25 percent.

As a result of that influx of illegal immigration, the earnings of this particularly vulnerable group dropped by between $800 and $1,500 each year. I'd venture to say that statistic is even further off when job sites that would pay you $40 an hour in a Union state now pay $18 an hour in a right to work state for Ironworking.

It's one of the reasons I left the trade, besides my lust for education and journalism in general.

Had I been able to maintain $40 an hour and $80 an hour in overtime, I'd probably be welding columns as we speak 100 feet in the air somewhere in the blistering hot sun.

Essentially the economic impact of illegal immigration in the United States is both costly to the consumer who must often time pay to have products replaced and it impacts the financial security of the county's legal residents, which should be more important than any other factor.

Illegal alien workers are often underpaid, which keeps wages lower in a particular occupation and region as I've laid out.

Illegal aliens can also then put a financial burden on local and federal law enforcement, since their continuously chasing down these job sites with raids, meanwhile those detained are being housed in county jails on the taxpayer dollar while that Sheriff's Office (at least under Obama) had to fight the government or even sue to get ICE to deport them.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">23% of Federal Inmates are illegals. DHS is deporting wholesale. We&#39;re not playing games anymore.<a href=""></a></p>&mdash; John Cardillo (@johncardillo) <a href="">August 9, 2017</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

Since we're mentioning the taxpayers, let's remind you that these illegals in those high paying jobs aren't paying any taxes to the city, state, or federal government.

You're talking hundreds of billions of lost tax revenue due to the hiring of criminals (remember, they were criminals the moment they came across that border) over American citizens who would be paying back into the communities.

To top it off, immigrants on average tend to have larger families that those in the U.S., which both puts a strain on the states which offer welfare to illegals and a financial and educational dilemma unto the resources of local school districts.

Essentially, these “children” are no different, they broke the law when they came here, and in some way, they're taking food out of an American’s mouth.

It's pretty simple. They have to go back.

DACA recipients were brought here as children and the majority were unaware of their status until applying to colleges. DACA recipients pay a $500 fee every 2 years in order to renew their permit. DACA recipients do not have a path to citizenship and DACA is not one. DACA is a work permit not a visa. DACA recipients pay taxes and don't receive any help from the government for it. Your whole article does not apply to them. Do your research before trying to make a point.

Is this an ongoing program? Do the members carry a card? How can children from other countries benefit from the DACA program based on what Anonymous wrote? Is it an open membership system so anybody can come in under it? I don't understand how children can be issued work permits. They are underaged to work. Who pays for their fee if they come here and are broke? They don't get welfare or any government assistance?
